9-11 For Sale

I feel a little strange about paying 10 bucks to go and see a movie about the 9-11 attacks.  Universal studios is presenting a “real-time” depicition of the events of the morning of 9-11 on flight 93.  Strange thing, Discovery released The Flight That Fought Back some time back, and it was a very interesting depection of those events.

I have one foot in school and one foot at work (which is somewhat like being an octopus because i have me feet in all kinds of things there), and then I split the rest of my apathy to church and family. YIKES! I just don’t care. I remember my senior year of high school was very similar. My motto was F* IT! I was palpably apathetic then, but what…
